Once a month, a group of volunteers come together in the basement of the Bethany Lutheran Church and bag up food to be delivered to the schools for the next month.

These bags include two breakfasts, two lunches, and a couple of snacks that teachers in the school system have identified as children in need.

The bags are delivered every Friday, so children will have them over the weekend.

“We have one child with food allergies and so we purchase special items just for the student.

This is the fifth year for Feed Our Kids Emmetsburg and the primary goals remains the same. “To nourish thos in need.”

During the 2018-2019 school year, Feed Our Kids Emmetsburg delivered 2,035 bags for students needing good healthy breakfasts and lunches on weekends. That comes out to 5,404 pounds of food.

If you are interested in volunteering call Cindy Magee at 712-450 – 7105 or Angie Strohman at 712-298-1648.
